Shrimp Pie (Scandanavian)

READY IN: 1hr 12mins
Recipe by Scoutie

I suppose you could cheat on this crust, but it is very easy to make, it's simply pressed into a deep-dish pie plate, no rollling out of the dough is needed. Judging from the other reviews on myrecipes.com, I advise to use a glass pie pan. It also might take more than 40 minutes to set up. Like a quiche, I can imagine adding onions, shrooms, broccoli, etc..., possibilites are endless. This also warms up well for lunch the next day. Adapted from Cooking Light, June 2005.

So good! I did cheat and use a store bought crust. That made this quick and easy to put together. Great mild flavor combination. Made for ZWT 6.
